The Mantel Wine Bar & Bistro
The Mantel Wine Bar & Bistro has been serving seafood, steaks and chops in a fine dining atmosphere since 1999. Located just across the historic Walnut Street Bridge, The Mantel is easy to access and features valet parking for customers. Seafood is flown in fresh multiple times per week, and steaks are certified Prime. Local favorites include the Steak Tartare and Lobster Ravioli, but don’t overlook the Sautéed Beef Tips or House Delmonico—a 10-ounce center cut rib eye. The wine list is extensive and relies heavily on Napa and Sonoma, but good variety is available, especially in the more than three-dozen, by-the-glass selections.
Pearl’s Restaurant Group has been a local favorite for Cajun-style dining for decades, and one of their concepts, Crabtown, has been in Bricktown since 1996. There is an extensive menu for lunch and dinner, but most locals go in a group for the crab boil. The huge meal includes snow crab legs, shrimp, Andouille sausage, corn on the cob, and potatoes, all dumped in the center of the table on butcher paper. Take your appetite with you, because it’s about a half pound of crab legs per person. For less hearty eaters, the appetizers are super fun. Try their alligator, krabby balls (fried crab and cheese), crawfish tails, and crab dip. Entrees include fresh fish, fried catfish, chicken, and jambalaya. Get the bananas foster bread pudding or blackberry cobbler for dessert, and don’t forget Crabtown’s full bar that includes a nice selection of local beers.
At Rendezvous Pizza, buffalo wings and cheap cold beer is the result of a long-time love affair with Detroit-Style pizza, a passion for beer and a great location for a restaurant becoming available in Oklahoma City's historic Bricktown district. The menu at Rendezvous offers a streamlined selection of fare that is executed very well. Menu items are house-made with high-quality local ingredients (whenever possible). Play a friendly game of table tennis after your meal in Rendezvous Pizza's game room located in the front of the restaurant.
Located in the heart of Bricktown in the old Tapwerks building, The Joinery holds three of food and entertainment. Their restaurant on the main floor features Italian-American cuisine with a twist and a robust selection of craft beer, cocktails and wine. After your meal, head to the second floor for a round of golf at their golf-simulation bar, the first of its kind in Oklahoma. If you're looking for a location to host an event, check out their private events space, located on the top floor of the venue.
